The JS-2 (Iosif Stalin 2) was a heavy tank used by the Red Army during World War II.
Few tanks of WW2 are as impressive as the JS-2, built in response to the new German Tiger and Panther tanks, the JS-2 was put into production in the last months of 1943 and proved to be very effective both in offensive actions and in its use as an anti-tank weapon.
As was the case with other Russian tanks during the war, the JS-2 was built following a policy of decentralization of resources to the factories where it was manufactured, thus achieving independent production units, but they also resulted in slightly different tanks (even if they were the same model). The JS-2 reproduced in this Tamiya model is from the Chelyabinsk Kirov factory and its main feature is the rounded shape on the front of its chassis.
